History

Our journey began as an experiment in 1983 when we planted 20 varieties on our 15-acre homesite to find out what would grow well in Kentucky– and make good wine. To our delight and surprise all but a few varieties weathered the first five years and produced excellent wines.

Spurred on by friends and encouraged by wine industry experts we went commercial in 1992. That first vintage was released in 1994.

Realizing the need to expand the vineyard, we purchased a 72 acre farm across beautiful Broad Run Creek and planted 25 more acres of vines.

For a time, the winery remained on the original homesite and our tasting room was housed in the old farm house on the new property. In 2003 we began construction of our new 8000 square foot winery and tasting room. Our 2004 vintage was the first to be made in the new facility.

Estate Vineyards / AVA

The original vineyard consisted of blocks of Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Riesling, and Gewurztraminer. At present, the vineyards cover 25 acres and include the addition of other varieties including Syrah, Malbec, Traminette, Pinot Noir, Carmine, Foch, Chambourcin, and Muscat– as well as some as-yet-unnamed experimental varieties.

We planted two new varieties in 2007! Sauvignon Blanc and Nebbiolo. Look for them on the shelf in 2013. Yes, it really takes that long to make good wine!!

Great wine!

We were recommended to this winery by a friend and we love their wine almost as much as they do now!
